Park Kitchen has been around for a few years, and I've eaten there three or four times, ranging from very good to excellent. The cooking is very "modern", not quite Nathan Myrhvold/Heston Blumenthal chemistry set cuisine, but all kinds of new tastes and new taste combinations; in short, its not the place to go if you just want a steak,...

We had an enjoyable dinner at Park Kitchen while visiting Portland. We sat outdoors on a beautiful summer evening and the location across from the park was delightful even though one of the park dwellers was a bit too vocal. Welcome to Portland :) We decided to order the small and large plate tasting menu. The meal started with a... More

Ashamed to say that I live in Portland and did not know of this restaurant! It took visitors from Arizona who had heard of it to get me there, and I am so pleased that we did! It was absolutely excellent! Innovative, creative, beautiful dishes abound from this kitchen. The service is top notch, friendly, professional. We had the small... More

Family of 4 lucked out on a Saturday night by stumbling on an empty table for four outside. For around £100 we got one delish cocktail, one beer, three non alcoholic cocktails, two big glasses of wine, and two courses each. Fantastic steak & blue cheese salad, amazing beef steak with gravy, homemade pasta, and tempura green beans then pannacotta,... More

I highly recommend trying the tasting menu. We ordered the Small & Large plate tasting. All of the small plates were wonderful. We had the Beet & Radish salad, chilled pea soup, Flank steak salad, and a homemade pasta dish that was to die for. The one disappointment was the salmon large plate, which lacked seasoning and flavor. Both desserts... More

Innovative and creative dishes from local ingredients, We had three small plates and dessert and everything was delicious and different. The carrots cooked three ways and the beet salad were both excellent and the berry pudding for dessert was outstanding. The small plates are best if you are not looking for large portions since they are like slightly larger tapas.... More

A near annual visit from Seattle to come visit Park Kitchen and they once again didn't let us down. We share plates that run the gamut. The Salt roasted beet salad was delicious and well-balanced, the lamb sausage smoky and good, the fava bean salad also nice. And the beef coppa with red win onions and tongue bacon was fantastic...

If you find ordering at restaurants too easy then Park Kitchen is the place for you! Park Kitchen is a tapas hybrid. A conventional tapas restaurant conveys to patrons the number of tapas necessary to make a full meal. At Park Kitchen the conventional tapas process is devolved so that patrons can enjoy not knowing if they will leave the... More

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, we were looking forward to eating at this Portland restaurant. Service was good. We each ordered a "large plate" of the beef short ribs. We enjoyed it, but for the price ($36 each) we both felt we should have received a larger portion. We're guessing that the dish contained less than 8 ounces of... More

Wonderful farm fresh food, very innovative preparation. We chose the restaurant for the menu and because we could sit outside with our dog. We were not disappointed. We shared the small and large plate tasting menu with an additional side of artisan bread. It was more than enough for both of us and everything was delicious. The staff was very... More
